tsarnaev. an exclusive against tamerlan. a source in russia tells nbc news russian intelligence reached out to the fbi last november about the 26-year-old. and crime scene units are back at the bomb site in boston right now. they're placing debris into garbage trucks. crews were seen sifting last night throughout that debris. let's go to pete williams. with a good afternoon to you, pete, let's talk first about the status of the charges in this case and what the likely charges will be. >> yes, i think the odds are pretty good that we'll see these charges in the next couple of hours. they're putting the final touches on them now. and we expect to learn a little more about what the fbi has assembled based on its investigation of the bombing. so perhaps there will be some new details that we'll get. in terms of the charges, i would think at the very least they'll charge him with the bombing, with a terrorism offense for that. and interestingly enough, under the federal statutes, which apply here, use of a weapon of mass destruction, which is the federal law version of what a bomb is, if death r

the samsung galaxy camera for $5 monthly access. >> mike: we now know that tamerlan tsarnaev, the bombing suspect who died friday in a shootout with police, spent the first six months of 2012 in russia. what was he doing there? well, here to discuss former cia officer claire lopez and former israeli defense force officer mark kahlberg. claire, this chechnya connection is troubling, may be the key to understanding. what is so important that we need to know about the brother, the chechnya connection, and his trip to russia? >> well, governor, chechnya is a jihad intjihad now to inteto ya. their online web posting, especially the "usa today" channel set up by tamerlan, the older brother. that's where we see links to the caucuses emirates, for example, and this is a jihad terrorist organization. it's led by a chechenhter. and it is dedicated to establishing an islamic state across the region, and enforcing islamic law there, shoul. this is dangerous to others, because the caucasus emirate has -- >> mike: mark, you're in tel aviv, but you've been a part of being a first responder at 50 or more
island. tamerlan tsarnaev was married to an american. the pair had a 3-year-old daughter. she grew up in a middle class family in rhode island. these are exteriors of her home. fbi presence there yesterday. neighbors say she and her daughter have moved back in with her family and that they hadn't seen tamerlan for some time. neighbors say katherine converted to islam for her husband. some reported seeing her walking around the neighborhood with a burka. it was unclear when the two were married. she attended suffolk university from 2007 to 2010. the school confirms that she never graduated, and the family released a statement to the effect of, these actions this week in this news confirms we never really knew him. meantime, we're hearing more stories about the dramatic end to the manhunt for suspect number two, as he was called, the younger brother. we've seen surveillance pictures showing the terror suspect jahar in the family's boat. look at that. we now know the owners immediately called police, when they suspected something -- somebody was in there. when the police arrived, the fin
that the older brother tamerlan was the leader in this? and that dzhokhar may have been the follower? >> i can't hear him. >> chris: okay. we have lost the commissioner temporarily. while we try to re-establish that connection, we're going to continue our conversation. and with so many questions still unanswered we'll come back to commissioner when we can. so many questions still unanswered about the terror plot and how to protect our homeland we invited two congressional leaders on national security to discuss what happens now. dianne feinstein is chair of the senate intelligence committee. congressman pete king is head of the house sub committee on counterterrorism and he joins us from new york. senator, congressman, hold on, we're going to go back to the police commissioner. do you have a sense whether the older brother tamerlan was the leader in this? and dzhokhar was somehow followed him in the conspiracy? >> any information along those lines is based upon conjecture at this point in time. i don't know definitively who was the motivator here. there is clearly evidence published publicly t
actually flee the vehicles and start shooting back at the officers older brother tamerlan puts his cruiser in gear so it begins to roll down the street. as is he out there firpg officers empty the rounds. able to move in on him and capture him. >> bill: i understand they were in very close quarters and they shot tamerlan he was shot a number of times, right? >> yes, yes, yes. he was struck by bullets. it's unclear when he suffered the fatal injuries because as they are struggling with him. as they are trying to arrest him and handcuff him, he is resisting arrest, his brother shoots out with the suv. his brother got into the suv and drives into the scene and drives into the brother. >> runs him over? >> runs him over and carries him several feet with the car. >> and the police dove out of the way. one police officer was shot, right, in the shootout not only was tamerlan shot but a cop was shot as well, right? >> a transit police officer by the name of richard donahue was shot in the leg, suffered a very serious injury but is recovering thank god. >> so then the younger, the 19-year-old he d
question this morning is: how much did other members of their family know? keep in mind that tamerlan, the 26-year-old suspect who was killed on thursday night moving into friday, that he was married. he was married to an american woman who became a muslim after she married him. they had a three-year-old daughter together. it's questionable now whether or not they were actually still together at the time of this bombing. some sources are saying that she, catherine, pictured here, had moved back home with her mother, judith, with the baby. and maybe that would be when tamerlan ended up going back to russia for those six months because if you're married and you have a small child, you might wonder, that would be suspicious to be gone for six months. >>steve: she is on the cover of the new york post today because she always dreamed of growing up, joining the peace corps and serving this country and others abroad. then she got tangled up with this guy, converted to islam. next thing you know, she dropped out. there is an interesting item in the "wall street journal" today that says essent
and tamerlan, the older brother, stood up and argued. then in january there was a praise for martin luther king jr. and he got up and called someone a hypocrite. he had to leave. >>gretchen: ostensibly this younger guy didn't know anything about the bombing until a week before. if that is true, that lends to what we were discussing this morning that he was just an underling. it brings out the story that the parents were absent. the parents had gone back to russia and this 19-year-old kid was able to be swayed by the older brother. it appears he was the one that radicalized himself. i'm not saying he's not to blame at all. >>brian: there's no way you should believe -- everyone's apparently running with this story. you've got to be kidding me. you question him for 90 seconds as he's come out of a harrowing situation like this. he's in self-preservation mode. this guy needs to be questioned for a couple of weeks, needs to see if his story line is up. then you've got to drill down on it with professional interrogators. he does not need to see his miranda rights read to him in bed. laughable. >>stev

department let all americans down by not flagging the slain terrorists tamerlan tsarnaev. when russian intelligence alerts american homeland security people about an individual, you mark that individual forever. the russians are busy. they don't have time for small ball. the fact that this guy was selected for scrutiny by russian intelligence is huge. and then he travels from the u.s.a. to russia, returning six months later and u.s. intelligence doesn't watch him? what a massive screw up. massive. in addition, the guy was posting jihad garbage on the internet. and, still, he was not being watched. we simply can't have it. that's a mistake that cost four people their lives and more than 200 others their health. we cannot afford mistakes like that. now, on the broader question, it's clear to any sane person that muslim jihadists are a threat to the world. yet, president obama will not say that. >> when a tragedy like this happens, with public safety at risk and the stakes so high, it's important that we do this right. that's why we have investigations. that's why we relentlessly gather t

questions in the boston marathon bombing. what was the motive? the f.b.i. says it interviewed tamerlan tsarnaev in 2011 after being told by a foreign government, reportedly russia, he had become a follower of riradical islam. they found no evidence of terrorist activity at that time. did the chech anyian brothers act alone or was it a broughter plan with coconspiracies in the u.s. or overseas? wayne simmons, a former c.i.a. analyst and joins us now with some insight. thank you for coming in today. >> always a pleasure. >> i want to ask you about this. the way that the bombs they use have had been described, you know, many law enforcement sources said they were too sophisticated for somebody who was going to google and throw something together that the brothers had to have training at some point. for what they are accused of doing. what do you make of that? >> all of us, first of all, those agree that nothing today is 100% certain. that is where we need to start. if i had to make a guess, i would remind guys like me that 12 years ago, 13 years ago the chechens were in afghanistan trying
